"Interstellar, from acclaimed filmmaker Christopher Nolan, takes us on a fantastic voyage far beyond our solar system. Yet in The Science of Interstellar, Kip Thorne, the physicist who assisted Nolan on the scientific aspects of Interstellar, shows us that the movie's jaw-dropping events and stunning, never-before-attempted visuals are grounded in real science. Thorne shares his experiences working as the science adviser on the film and then moves on to the science itself. In chapters on wormholes, black holes, interstellar travel, and much more, Thorne's scientific insights many of them triggered during the actual scripting and shooting of Interstellar, describe the physical laws that govern our universe and the truly astounding phenomena that those laws make possible."--Publisher's description.… (mere)

First things first. I loved the movie. Nice to see a thoughtful SF movie. I am amazed at the amount of ink, virtual and other otherwise, being spilled about "What is wrong with this movie" or "What is wrong with Chris Nolan". I am delighted that Prof. Kip Thorne was involved with this film. His book,"Black Holes and Time Warps" is one of the best "popular" science books available. If you have not read it,do so. if you have seen the movie and have not read it,do so.
No, "Interstellar" is not 2001. It pays homage to 2001. 2001 was the result of one the greatest directors, and one of the greatest SF writers coming together to make a very unique film at a critical junction of human history. "The Science of Interstellar" gives a good back ground to some of the thinking behind the movie. And,like "Black Holes and Time Warps", Prof. Thorne gives the reader an excellent bibliography for further exploration of one of the "hot" fields of astrophysics. For all the arm chair physicists out there flipping out about the movie, I have advice from from my favorite computer; "...sit down calmly,take a stress pill and think things over." ( )

A companion piece to the incredible 2014 sci-fi film Interstellar, Nobel Prize-winning physicist Kip Thorne's book is more than a few degrees of difficulty above your usual popular science book. Deeply involved in the development of the film, Thorne goes into great detail (often technical) about how he ensured the science used in the film was feasible. He created complex equations that kept the filmmakers honest (the equations on Michael Caine's blackboard in the film are real ones created by Thorne and written by him personally on set) and in this book he delves into fearsomely complex concepts such as fifth dimensions, wormholes, black hole accretion disks and tesseracts.

Thorne's endeavours helped ensure that Interstellar became one of the most visionary, awe-inspiring and intellectually-stimulating creations ever put to film, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a bit unmanned when reading his book. There are scientists out there better able to get complicated ideas across to the general reader, whereas Thorne too easily gets technical and the book can be tough going. Nevertheless, the raison d'être of the book is 'show your working', and Thorne certainly does this. It is a great achievement and adds its considerable academic weight to the creative force that is Interstellar. ( )

Although I generally prefer books like this in the audio format because it makes me feel as though I'm taking a class and having it explained to me rather than slogging through an astrophysics book that I'll never comprehend, I did miss out on the figures Mr. Thorne kept referring to which would have helped a great deal as an A/V aid.

Excellent companion piece to Christopher Nolan's Interstellar. While the movie stands strongly on its own, this book adds to the pleasures of the film immensenly by providing scientific context. ( )

Spacetime wormholes, black holes, extradimensionality, and other science topics relevant to the movie _Interstellar_, in the making of which astrophysicist Thorne was involved. Rich with color diagrams and other imagery. Best read after seeing the movie, which I had not done.
